Just had this back from the Adelphi:

[color=blue:cd5376a9fb]Andrew,
Thanks for the email,

Reg 74 and Reg 77 and Schedule 7 deal with the qualifying conditions, award and payment of an extended payment.
Reg 77 deals with the date on which HB ceases on the award of an EP.

Reg 77 prescribes that ” a claimant’s entitlement to housing benefit shall cease at the end of the benefit week in which entitlement to Income Support or income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance ends…..”
Therefore for example.

HB/CTB would be paid up to the last day of the benefit week in IS/JSA (IB) ceases:-

For example:-

If IS ends on a Monday 29/05/06 (that is to say the last day of entitlement is Sunday 28/05/06) then HB should be paid up to and including, the end of that benefit week Sunday 04/06/06.

If IS ends on a Sunday 28/05/06 (that is to say the last day of entitlement is Saturday 27/05/06) then HB should be paid up to and including the end of that benefit week Sunday 28/05/06.

Thanks

Which, one would hope, would be enough to convince an auditor that if an ETD shows a JSA(IB)/IS termination date of a Sunday, the JSA/IS ceases on the Monday.
